Cherrylake is a wholesale tree nursery in Groveland, Florida. They grow some of the most beautiful specimen trees in the southeast USA. Magnolia, Crepe Myrtle, Oak, Japanese Blueberry, Holly, Bald Cypress, just to name a few.

They recently initiated a really special program called “1,000 trees for 1,000 years”. Bald Cypress (Taxodium distichum) are native to America and are known to grow to over 3,000 years old. They can be grown throughout the southeast all the way north to Chicago. The idea is to plant trees not just for the near term but for the true future of the earth. Based on a recent scientific study, the New York Times stated that the best way to fight climate change is to plant a trillion trees.

Get started with 100…and plant ones that will grow for 1,000 years! This is a “starter package” and includes 100 tree liners of Bald Cypress shipped to you to plant in an area that will be protected – hopefully for 1,000 years. 

This starter package for the “1000 Trees for 1000 Years” program includes 100 Bald Cypress tree liners. This is available to all areas where Bald Cypress will grow. Shipping is included.
